Why am I doing this?
I have set myself the Challenge of living off a modern version of wartime rationing. The reason I want to do this is to show myself that it is possible to live off less, to enjoy what I have and to eat simply and healthily on limited ingredients and foods.
It is for my own record and education, and while the blog is open to the public now it will be reverted to Private if there is too much criticism of my diet, my choices or my methods. This is not designed to educate others or tell others what to do, eat, use or wear ... it is my Modern Rationing Online Diary.
Why no tea on my ration?
As tea makes me physically ill and has done since the age of 13, I cannot include this on my rations. I will instead take the same weight in instant coffee each week and an extra 4ozs once a month in place of the Camp Coffee.
Why is there no meat allowance on my rations?
I do not eat meat.
Why are there dairy replacements on my rations?
I am dairy intolerant.
